    once a hen has grown past the age for egg laying
    is it okay for one to cull this hen for food?

    I do not have the chickens yet
    but with this small property I do not suppose I would be able
    to keep hens and have no eggs coming out

    the yard would soon get veeeery crowded haha

    that hen would be very tough to eat ...

    HOWEVER...you may be able to pressure cook it...
    OR make chicken stock with it...

    I would use a slow cooker to tender her up.
